Attendees displayed plenty of creativity as “weapons” and other intimidating features were added to the standard robot chassis provided. It was all in good fun, even if some parts were left in the arena after several contests. The highlight of the day was a concluding “Battle Royale”, in which the surviving contestants teamed up in an attempt to defeat the evil Centibot (a wireless, hybrid machine comprised of three chassis linked together.) As the struggle continued, the Centibot’s six drive wheels were disabled one by one, until a truce was finally called.
It was a fun day, and attendees took their creations home (leading no doubt to some interesting encounters with the family pet!)
